Maths with smarties is a fun way of learning and once they have recorded their data, they get to enjoy their sweets!
Wall chart. I printed this display from Teachers Pet (link in 'resources') I then laminated it to becomes a wipe clean, reusable learning aid. I pick a random number every morning and my children answer each question for that particular number.

For numeracy, I again follow the national curriculum and use the main website (find link in 'resources') to plan lessons.
The planning structure for the year 2 numeracy curriculum is organised into 5 blocks. These 5 blocks are then split into 3 units each representing 2 or 3 weeks of teaching.
For maths we use a lot more workbooks and iPad apps to supplement learning. We also focus on memorising time tables almost every day.
